Does one dog seem to 'alert' you regarding the other(s)?
Whenever Buddy coughs or sneezes, Champ will jump up and come to whichever one of us is closest and nudge us, then look at Buddy, then look back at us, almost as if he is saying "Look at Buddy, something is wrong! Fix him!" Buddy will do a 'reverse cough' once in a while, especially if he has been licking his legs, and that really seems to bother Champ. We just tell him it's okay, that his brother is fine and he can relax. As soon as Buddy stops, Champ goes back to whatever he had been doing.
Buddy never reacts when Champ sneezes or coughs.

Only once- Tank had fallen down the stairs and Bentley started barking like crazy. Thankfully Tank was okay.
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
Champ, you are the sweetest brother!
The only similar thing to that was when Bruno was a puppy and Judy would alert me to when he had to go outside. Bruno would leave a dribble trail to the door.
When Ozzy was sick, Emma hovered over him and would often run to get us if we were in another room. The day he died she did not leave his side most of the day. Just before he passed away she came flying in to the bedroom, from a forced potty break, layed her head on him and let out the most mournful howl I have ever heard from her. It was heartbreaking. When Maxx was limping off and on from Pano she would lay next to him and lick the leg he was currently limping on. She is a very sensitive dog and has anxiety issues, I truly think she tries to communicate to us when something is wrong. She does not do the same for the cats, she spends her time herding them!

Ozzy - 10/16/02 - 06/28/11 - Always in my heart.
Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Buddy lets us know when Jack needs out.
yes , they try and make eye contact with me, when little ms. wild child is on the furniture.
Jazzy "tells on" the beagles. When one of them is doing something they shouldn't she'll give a sharp little bark and come find me. She'll then nudge me with her head until I get up and follow her. She's the Sheriff dog!LOL
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am

All of mine would alert me when Kramer would have a seizure. They would circle around him, lower their heads and look over at me. It was kind of eerie and it took a couple times of that happening to realize my dog WAS having seizures.
